Ben Sawyer who has been named as Head coach of the New Zealand Women’s Cricket Team with a Two year contract. Earlier who is working as a Australian Women’s Fast bowling coach single 2018. Apart of this national side he also head coach of the Birmingham Phoenix in the Hundred and previously was head coach of the Sydney Sixers in the WBBL too.

“I can’t wait to get stuck in,” Sawyer said. “I see a lot of potential in this White Ferns group and I feel really optimistic about helping to untap that potential, so they can take their cricket to the next level. It’s certainly going to be a learning process as I get to know the players and they get to know me, and my cricket philosophies and coaching style.

“If you get the players making a priority of the processes and concentrating on the preparation and routines that improve and develop performance, then the outcomes tend to look after themselves. That’s where consistency of performance comes from, and that’s what we’re seeking,” he added.

Sophie Devine who is the skipper of the NZ Women’s Team welcome to move to work with Sawyer. Their side first to play a match in the commonwealth games at Birmingham.

“We’re really looking forward to working with Ben and receiving the benefit of his experience,” she said. “He’s been a key figure in the ongoing success of the Australian women’s team and we hope we can tap into that bank of experience and grow together as a team. The upcoming Commonwealth Games campaign in Birmingham and the tour to West Indies will be really helpful in that regard – there’s nothing like away tours for bringing a group together and sharing a common purpose.”
